We aim to make great leaders and great organizations even better.

Together.

Your path to greatness starts with the numbers.

The ability to harness your data and use it to drive strategy is instrumental. We have a reputation for translating complex data into coherent stories and insights. From these come solutions that not only solve the problem at hand, but setup your organization for . . . greatness.

Most importantly, we operate on a partnership model, focused on bringing in your organization’s leadership and stakeholders to make decisions collaboratively that make sense for your team.

Your path to greatness starts with the numbers.

Let's forge a partnership

We have the experience and a deep toolkit and are by your side every step of the way.

We’re honest, even when it hurts. We believe that numbers do not lie, and we use data to help tell your story. We will not sell you anything you do not need, but also do not sugarcoat what needs to get done.

We are community builders. We are invested in our clients' success and the creation of a vibrant community in the Pacific Northwest.

We are developing the next generation of women and diverse leaders.

Our Approach

01

Discovery

We will interview key people, scour over spreadsheets, collect all of your documents, conduct audits, evaluate your systems, and whatever else it takes to get a clear picture of what your organization is facing.

02

Analysis

We dig deep and analyze all of that information to identify bottlenecks, pull out patterns, and present the data in a way that helps you understand what’s really going on.
